Cornish Short Stories is here!

We are delighted to announce the publication of Cornish Short Stories: A Collection of Contemporary Cornish Writing. Our official publication date is 2 April and pre-orders are available from all good booksellers and online. Cornish shorts.png

Join us for our book launch and celebration at The Falmouth Bookseller on Saturday 19 May at 6pm!

The anthology contains the work of nineteen writers including authors Tom Vowler, Katherine Stansfield, Rob Magnuson Smith, Cathy Galvin of The Word Factory and Tim Hannigan. We also introduce stories by exciting new voices such as Anastasia Gammon and S Reid. Find out more on our website.

Ghosts walk in the open and infidelities are conducted in plain sight. Two teenagers walk along a perfect beach in the anticipation of a first kiss. Time stops for nothing—not even for death. Sometimes time cracks, disrupting a fragile equilibrium.

The stories are peopled with locals and incomers, sailors and land dwellers; a diver searches the deep for what she has lost, and forbidden lovers meet in secret places. Throughout, the writers’ words reveal a love of the incomparable Cornish landscape.

Cornish Short Stories: A Collection of Contemporary Cornish Writing is published by The History Press, ISBN: 978 0750 983556.

 

Cornish Short Stories: Three Weeks to Go

There are three weeks left to submit your short stories to Cornish Short Stories: A Collection of Contemporary Cornish Writing, a new anthology due to be published by The History Press in May 2018. Submissions close on 7 July 2017.

Editors Felicity Notley and Emma Timpany are looking for stories of 2,000 to 6,000 words in length, though exceptional work which falls outside this range will also be considered.

All entries must be the author’s own work and should not have been published anywhere, in print or online. The stories must have a Cornish setting and the author must be Cornish or resident in Cornwall. Stories for children are not suitable for this publication.

Within these guidelines, we encourage you to make full use of your creative freedom and embrace a wide range of subject matters, literary styles and genres (literary fiction, crime fiction, historical fiction, sci-fi etc.) We are simply looking for the very best new writing.

You can find more details, get in touch with questions, and submit your work on our website. We’re also on Twitter @CornishShorts and Facebook.
